Checkered Lily

Checkered Lily (Fritillaria meleagris)

Yes, the petals of the drooping, bell-like blooms really are checkered! These tough little beauties are also known as Snake's Head Fritillary and are excellent for planting with companions that bloom later in the season.


Fritillaria (Fritillaria uva-vulpis)

This native of Turkey and Iran thrives when planted to receive spring rainfall, but have fairly dry roots the rest of the year. Brings carefree, early color to dry, rocky areas with its bell-like blooms of deep burgundy tipped with yellow.
